Akata Witch

Sunny has just burned off most of her hair. She was staring at a candle when suddenly she sees in the flame a vision of the end of the world. Yikes! From that moment she is introduced to another world of juju knives, Leopards and Lambs, and her hidden powers.

Sunny is an albino, born in America to parents from Nigeria; and now she and her family have moved back to Nigeria. Sunny finds out that her family are Lambs, those who have no idea of the magical world. Sunny is a free agent, a Leopard, one born with magical abilities but no family members with powers. Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor mixes the reality of being a middle schooler with the fantasy of spells and dark magic.
